Coming from Hudy are their new brushless 40mm and 30mm fan units. Ball raced and thus highly reliable the fans offer easy to reach solder tabs that allow for quick and convenient wire replacements and more tidy wire routing. The fans are usable as motor and speed controller coolers and they include all-black 170mm wires.
Tekin have introduced their new ROC412 HD Element Proof 550-class electric brushless motor. Designed for crawler and trail rigs the 4-pole/12-slot motor makes use of a machined 6061-T6 billet aluminium heatsink can and it comes with an 18.5mm rotor and Neodymium sintered magnets for strong braking power and torque. The motor is highly resistant to water, mud and snow, allowing the use even in unreal track conditions and its sensored design ensures smooth and reliable power output. The features list is rounded out by ABEC5 bearings and a high-strength 5mm pinion shaft.
Japanese brand Trion have introduced their new V2 series 540-size sensored electric brushless motor. The power plant is of a new design that revolves around a high-airflow can with huge cooling openings around the front section while machined openings in the stator area further increase the airflow in this area. This leads to a much cooler motor towards the end of a run and thus reduced fading and more stable performance. An updated stator further adds to the overall performance with increased torque and reduced heat build-up. The motor is rounded out by a new rotor and available from now on in a 5.0T touring and a 6.5T off-road variant with additional 4.5T to 8.5T variants coming later in July.
Coming from Team Corally are the new Molan SS 3.0 modified brushless motors. Their specially designed can offers optimised airflow for improved cooling and thus less power fading towards the end of a run while also ensuring a very low weight. The motors come with static and dynamic balanced rotors for extra performance, heavy duty solder tabs, dual sensor ports and they are available in 3.5T to 10.5T variants.
Muchmore Racing have introduced the Fleta ZX V2, a brand new motor that guarantees maximum power and efficiency. Featuring a heavily machined can, the Flow-Max 2 Cooling System allows for superior cooling, enhancing the cooling efficiency by 15% in comparison to their previous motors, which is great achievement in terms of keeping the motor performance as high as possible. In addition, the High Power new stator design approach doesn’t use a separate insulator, therefore having less weight and further improved cooling as well as very low internal resistance in exchange for surprisingly high output power. The ZX V2 motor also incorporates ‘maximum low resistance copper wire’ that allows low internal resistance which results in large power output increase.
Muchmore have released an updated version of their Fleta ZX8 motor. This new low cogging torque version 2050KV motor features the innovative 4-pole 8 magnet ‘staggered pole’ rotor offering smooth power delivery while reducing damage to the ESC. The rest of the motor remains the same with a machined aluminium motor case with heatsink ribbings and Flow-Max venting hole technology for maximised cooling as well as super low-friction ball bearings, adjustable timing and dual sensor connections.
Eliminate the ‘motor-of-the-week’ madness with Reedy’s Sonic 540-FT Competition Brushless Motor. Designed for performance and value, the Sonic 540-FT Fixed-Timing is a great motor for racers, clubs and racing series that want to equalise performance among participants at an economical price. Available in race-proven ROAR-legal 17.5 and 13.5 versions, with more versions available soon.
Following a first introduction LRP have now officially announced the new X22 540-class electric brushless motor. Based off of the long-running and very successful X20 platform the new motor will offer improved performance and efficiency thanks to its redesigned 7075-T6 aluminium motor can with additional cooling openings and a new Dark Shine Black anodising. With overall lower operation temperature the motor will run more powerful for longer which is further helped by the smaller 4x10x4mm ABEC-5 ball races, a precision-balanced sintered rotor as well as the new 14.5 degrees to 34.5 degrees timing range. Part of the package is also a water-proof PreciSensor system for precise power control with every sensored speed controller. The motor meet IFMAR, EFRA, ROAR, FEMCA, JMRCA, BRCA and DMC specifications and it is available in a full range of modified windings from 3.0T to 10.0T, as standard .5 and even .0 windings.
